The startup I am working at raised around 30M in the new round of funding and they are planning to double number of employees from 50 to 100 in a year.

I am interested in knowing how much raise in base salary have you seen for a senior software engineer (9+ years exp) after a new round of funding in similar situations?

San Francisco Bay area company.

    You can try to re-negotiate your contract and salary based on future funding milestones.

    Not much impact of the funding. Mostly your stock value increases a lot.

      Usually neither. Stock refresh happens as specified in the offer letter
